C&D pays tribute to sailors everywhere who have been so influential to pipe smoking through the centuries. Snug Harbor is a delicious blend of Burleys, Turkish, Latakia and Perique with just a hint of flavoring to enhance the natural sweetness and room note.
Another Bob Runowski subtle wonder! Snug Harbor is the first new English/Aro I've tried in years. Totally love this blend. Its light, its delicious and packs a nice punch. This is going on my all day smoke list. You can light it and forget it. The to... Read Morepping is mildly noticeable at the start of a bowl but dwindles off to let the natural tobacco flavors take the staring role. The Burley and Oriental seem to dominate, teaming up for a consistent nutty, mild tart/sour note. That base is spiced up a notch with smokey note of Latakia, always on stage but way in the back. The perique, which is subtle, adds dark fruit and sweetness. The classic Runowski robust earthy C&D burley flavor is obvious, the topping and blending has it singing a slightly sweeter note than usual. If you're a fan of Bob's Pegasus blend, Haunted Bookshop or OJK, you will find familiar, but much lighter and sweet notes here. Highly recommend. Read Less
Bough an ounce of this more than a half a year ago. The tin note let me down then, so I just decided to let it age a bit. Today I gave it a chance. Where to begin: the tin note remained the same: something sweet and sour, almost like fermented fruit ... Read Moreleft in the sun to rot. As I've come across blends that smelled nasty but tasted great, I filled my pipe. Oh boy...the tin tone goes into the taste: the smell sour sweet fermented taste, and not in the orientals sour taste, no, the same rotten fruits taste again. The latakia was a bit forward and kind of harsh, I would have expected the aging to tone and mellow it down, but it did not happen. Could not detect the perique. The only good thing I can say about this is that the bottom of the bowl gave the classic medium english blend taste. I'm not hating on C&D, as my all time favorite blend is Sam's blend. I really hope this was just a bad batch I got. Bottom line is this is not an english aromatic and it really is not enjoyable. Read Less
This is like Odessa with a top note. Orientals and Burley with perique, what a unique blend. For me, smoking something with perique is like eating a chinese dish with szechuan peppercorns, that tingling feeling it gives to the mouth. Too much and ...

I'll smoke it on occasion, but it won't be in my rotation. Read Less
I just received this today, and let me tell you, when I opened my mailbox I could smell this just marinating in there. It wasnt as strong as most English blends, but it was just, hm, inviting. I couldnt wait to open the package. Gravity filled a cob ... Read Morewith this and from the false light, I knew this was going to be great. Lit her back up and it was just a beaut. A real beaut Clark. Burned to a fine ash, and literally wasnt even dottle left in the bowl. Burned fairly cool and only required 2 relights, not by fault of the smoke, but of the smoker who was preparing dinner. Mustache smell was smoky. Which was surprising as the Latakia wasnt super pungent or pronounced in this blend. Can't wait to try it again after it has mellowed for a few months. Do yourself a favor and greenlight this one!

I like English blends, and I like Burley blends, so it follows that this C&D Burley-based English tickles my taste buds the right way.
Sung Harbor is a well-mannered, balanced blend with just a hint of Vanilla - and I mean just a hint. It's the... Read Morere in the tin note, and just ever so slightly in the smoke flavour.
The main players in this blend for me are Burley and Perique, with the Turkish and Latakia filling supporting roles. First light gave a not-unpleasant Burley sourness on the tongue which quickly settled down to a rounded cocoa/nutty foundation on which the other tobaccos built. The Perique pepper notes began slowly and built through the bowl, but never became harsh or overbearing. Latakia smokiness is present enough throughout to know it's in there but does not dominate. I'm not sure I detected a unique flavour from the Turkish, but I'm sure I'd miss it if it wasn't part of the blend.
Overall, Snug Harbor is a satisfying Burley based English smoke. Medium strength, and I did notice the Vitamin N kick in about 3/4 through the bowl. I sipped steadily through the smoke and the pipe stayed cool and my tongue came out unscathed. No bite here unless you really push it.
Burned to a nice white ash with a bit of dottle in the heel of my GBD Bent Billiard (common for this pipe). Aftertaste is a pleasant smoky Burley nuttiness.
Not quite an all-day smoke for me, but I'll reach for it in the afternoon or evening.
At low bulk pricing, I recommend grabbing a sample! Read Less
I am a HUGE fan of C&D Latakia and Perique blends but, was skeptical of an English Aromatic. What is that anyway? Boy was I wrong. This is a great tobacco and you must try it. It is an unbelievable smooth smoke which will make your partner swoon... Read More with the room note. Not as much Perique as Mountain Camp but, the Turkish tobaccos are an amazing addition to the blend. Smooth, flavorful and no bite. Read Less
